    USB Drives on t5725 with Win2008

    OK getting a problem with USB Drives

    Using HP t5725 TC's with Windows 2008 TS

    Had to create a custom rdesktop connection in HP Conn Manager to get it to connect the TS (due to RDP6.1 protocol)

    This all worked fine.. until someone plugged in their USB Drive..

    Bakc to the command line i find that I added the following to get it redirect the USB Drive

    Code:
     rddesktop <<snip>> -r drive:usb_drive=/media/usb0
    to no avail..

    I'm guessing that this is Win2008's doing but as yet cannot resolve the issue (killing Win2008 is out as we have started using RemoteApps to run SIMS..)

    The command line is wrong, you need to specify a sharename that is limited to 8 characters. Like so.

    Code:
    rddesktop <<snip>> -r drive:USB=/media/usb0

  3. Thanks to Geoff from:

    Presumably you've enabled access to remote drives in the relevant places?
